Description

PRIORITY

This application claims priority to U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/433,235, filed Jan. 16, 2011, entitled “METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR SHARING SPEECH RECOGNITION PROGRAM PROFILES FOR AN APPLICATION,” the disclosure of which is incorporated by reference herein.

FIELD OF INVENTION

The present invention relates generally to the field of sharing one or more “speech recognition program profiles for applications” created or residing in a speech recognition software in a computing device, with speech recognition software in one or more other computing devices; enabling a user to utilize speech recognition software to interact with an application and more specifically, to creating a speech recognition program profile for an application, management of the sharing process through uploading a speech recognition program profile for an application to a sharing interface, allowing a user to select and download from the sharing interface one or more speech recognition program profiles for applications available for download to a speech recognition software in a computing device, followed by the speech recognition software being able to utilize the downloaded speech recognition program profile for an application to interact with the application the profile was created for. A computer software is an application consistent with this invention. A computer game is a type of application consistent with this invention. A personal computer software is an application consistent with this invention. A tablet software is a type of application consistent with this invention. A mobile application is a application consistent with this invention.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Speech recognition systems, i.e. systems for recognizing spoken language, are rapidly increasing in significance in many areas of data and communications technology. Speech recognition systems typically are comprised of a computing system loaded with a speech recognition software for processing. Many speech recognition software have a grammar, sometimes also called a dictionary, either built in or in some other way available to the software.

Speech recognition software can be constructed for installation and use in computing devices that may be servers, client devices or other computing devices.

Speech recognition software designed for use in computing devices are currently available from companies such as Voice Tech Group, Inc., IBM, Nuance, Phillips, Loquendo, and Microsoft as well as others. Some suppliers manufacture speech recognition software for cell phone, GPS, PDA, game devices, autos and other hardware systems.

Speech recognition software are currently used in many applications such as voice recognition, voice search, interactive voice response systems, command recognition systems giving direction to a computer or device, dictation mode systems including medical transcription, speaker identification, speech analytics, keyword processing, automotive applications, game applications, security systems, and hypertext navigation including multi-modal navigation.

Speech recognition software can interact with many applications and systems that do not include a speech recognition capability. Some applications a speech recognition software may interact with include computer games, cell phone games, brain thought controlled games, multitouch interface games, spreadsheets, word processors, presentation software such as Powerpoint, productivity applications like Photoshop, enterprise applications, robotics applications, artificial intelligence applications, natural language processing applications, mobile applications, web applications, web services, cell phone applications, desktop applications, server applications, client applications, applications that have API's and API's that allow parameters to be passed to them. The interaction can encompass anywhere from complete control of an application via speech recognition to limited interactions. A speech recognition software may be a plug in for a web browser.

In order for a speech recognition software to interact with an application such as those listed above or others, a grammar may be required. The grammar may be in one of many different forms such as a XML file, other file type, dynamic data, or other data form, accessible by a speech recognition software. Most grammars generally may not be accessible by speech recognition software other than those they were designed to operate with. A grammar may be designed specifically to interact with one or more particular applications external to a speech recognition software. A grammar may be included with other information into a speech recognition profile for an application, designed specifically to interact with one or more applications external to a speech recognition software. Some existing speech recognition software currently allows a user to create a custom built speech recognition profile for a application, allowing the user to utilize the created custom speech recognition profile for an application in their speech recognition software to control the application it was built for, via speech commands.

Currently grammars, other files and other data used in speech recognition software to interact with other applications are not easily shared from user to user, and similarly from a first user's computing device to another user's computing device. Some manufacturers of speech recognition software may offer grammar replacements, but none offer solutions which may allow a first user to share a speech recognition profile for an application with other user(s) and their computing device(s).

As an example, there may be a clear benefit if a first user can share with one or more other users via a sharing interface, a speech recognition program profile created for use in a speech recognition software to control an application.

If an application is a game, there may be a clear benefit if a first user can share with one or more other users via a sharing interface, a speech recognition program profile created for use in a speech recognition software to control a game.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

A method and system for sharing a speech recognition program profile for an application. The system provides computing devices, speech recognition software, storage systems that may include one or more databases, file system, one or more speech recognition program profiles for an application the speech recognition software may interact with, one or more sharing interfaces which may comprise one or more websites, database, web service, application, peer to peer networking, a sharing interface computer readable storage, a means to communicate from computing device to computing device and to and from sharing interfaces. A speech recognition program profile for an application may comprise a grammar file, a speech command actions file for an application, profile description data, application description data, user info, other data. Speech recognition program profiles for an application may be used by a user to cause a speech recognition software to interact with the application the profile was created for.

A user may utilize a speech recognition software, application, game or other means in a computing device to create a speech recognition program profile for an application that may comprise a grammar, speech commands actions for an application, application data, user info, other data that may comprise a grammar file name, speech command actions file name, application or game start speech command, application or game quit speech command, other speech commands. A speech recognition software in a computing device may store a speech recognition program profile for an application or game in a storage device.

Speech recognition software, application, game or other program in a computing device may transmit a speech recognition program profile for an application or game to a sharing interface which may store the transmitted speech recognition program profile for an application or game. The sharing interface may comprise a website, web service, database, file system, application, peer to peer network, file storage system where the speech recognition program profile for an application may be saved and shared. The sharing interface may be a server, computing device, computing appliance, mobile device such as a cellular phone. A sharing interface may be a forum. A sharing interface may be a social networking site. A sharing interface may be a online store.

The sharing interface may make information about one or more speech recognition program profiles for an application or game available via a display or other means to one or more users requesting the information. A user may view information about a speech recognition program profile for an application in a speech recognition software, website, webpage, list, database, file, other application or other display means.

A user may select one or more displayed speech recognition program profiles for an application that the user wants to download.

A user may download one or more selected speech recognition program profiles for an application from a sharing interface and they may be installed into a speech recognition software or other application which may itself be installed on a computing device. The speech recognition program profile for an application may persist inside the speech recognition software or application it is installed into and may be available for use anytime a user decides to use the speech recognition profile for an application.
